A 12-member mixed jury on Thursday found 54-year-old Sukhdeo Dharamdat, called “Toney”, and his son, 25-year-old Eshwardat Dharamdat, called “Bruddow”, guilty of murder and manslaughter respectively in relation to the death of their neighbour Suresh Nandkishore, called “Ravo”, in 2015 over a land dispute.The two men were on trial before Justice Navindra Singh at the Demerara High Court.Dead: Suresh NandkishoreDuring the proceedings at Court on Wednesday, Government Pathologist Dr Nehaul Singh took the stand to offer evidence pertaining to the post mortem examination that he had conducted.During his testimony, Dr Singh informed the court that while performing Nandkishore’s post-mortem, he observed a laceration to his head measuring about eight centimetres.He said the accountant died as a result of subgaleal or under-scalp haemorrhaging, which is bleeding in the potential space between the skull, as a result of head trauma.Accused: Eshwardat Dharamdat (left) and his father Sukhdeo DharamdatMeanwhile, the older Dharamdat (Sukhdeo), who led his defence by offering evidence, told the court that on February 3, 2015 he and his son (Eshwardat) were working when his younger son, Chaitram Dharamdat — who was killed in the Camp Street Prison fire back in 2016 — informed him that the Nandkishores were repairing the fence on their plot of land.He said that when he approached the victim to inquire about what they were doing, a heated argument ensued, and as a result, he and his younger son were attacked by the deceased brother, Parmanand Nandkishore, who was armed with a cutlass, which he used to inflict a chop to his face.The accused claimed that Eshwardat was nowhere around at the time of the attack.However, while under cross-examination by State Prosecutor Tuanna Hardy, the accused admitted to picking up a piece of wood and throwing it in the direction of the deceased, as well as cuffing the dead man’s brother.He, nevertheless, denied that he started the argument, and that his sons attacked the now dead man, his father and brother. The accused further stated that he did not say “we ga kill all them men before we go to jail,” as he explained that he tried to save Bhopaul Nandkishore (deceased father) who was injured unknowingly to him and had fallen into the trench.On the other hand, the second accused, Eshwardat Dharamdat, had led his defence by an unsworn statement in which he stated that he had no involvement in the attack, but only went to his father’s rescue after being alerted.The trial into the 2015 murder commenced on Tuesday.On February 6, 2015, the older Dharamdat and his two sons — Eshwardat and Chaitram Dharamdat — made their first court appearance at the Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court and were charged with the murder of Nandkishore. The two accused were represented by attorneys Brandon De Santos and Alanna Lall.The State’s case was led by Prosecutor Tuanna Hardy in association with Abigail Gibbs and Teriq Mohammed.During the trial, the deceased brother, Parmanand Nandkishore, who is the prosecution’s star witness, told the court that at about 11:30h on February 3, 2015, his father Bhopaul Nandkishore and his now dead brother had asked him to assist them in repairing a fence on their plot of land in the backdam at Mahaica.He told the jury that about 15 minutes after arriving at the land by boat, the older Dharamdat [Sukhdeo] approached his father, inquiring about what they were doing, after which he left. He told the court that after another 15 minutes’ interval, the said accused along with his two sons returned, this time armed with cutlasses, shortly after which an argument ensued.The court heard that when the three victims decided to leave the land, the older Dharamdat attacked the deceased, pushing him to the ground, where he dealt him a blow to the head using a piece of wood. The older Nandkishore went to his son’s rescue, but was also hit in the head by the younger Dharamdat [Eshwardat] and fell into a nearby trench. Meanwhile, Parmanand, who witnessed the attack on his family members, was dealt several cuffs, chops and lashes about his body with a cutlass and a piece of wood by all three of the Dharamdats, during which he pretended to be dead so the attackers would leave.The court was further informed that after the three attackers left, Parmanand left his father and brother behind as he managed to escape and seek help.
Pepe Mel 1 Former West Brom manager Pepe Mel has emerged as a rival to ex-Manchester United boss David Moyes for the Real Sociedad job.It has been widely reported the Spanish club has identified Moyes as the man they want to succeed Jagoba Arrasate, who was sacked on Saturday night.The Scotsman, who left Old Trafford after ten difficult months, is reportedly considering the offer but now, according to sources in Spain, Mel is also in the running.The Spaniard has been without a job since leaving West Brom in May following four miserable months in charge, which yielded just three victories.But Mel’s stock remains high in Spain – thanks to his success with the likes of Rayo Vallecano and Real Betis – and he could be offered a route back in with Sociedad.It is understood that Moyes remains the club’s first choice but they think Mel could represent a more economically viable option.

Judge KellyIT took six Gardai to restrain a Co Donegal man after he was ejected from an ‘End of the World Party’ at a local nightclub, a court heard today.Kevin Clarke, from Dresnagh, Castlefin, appeared before Letterkenny District Court on public order charges relating to the incident in the early hours of December 22 last at The Pulse nightclub in the town. The disco was organised as a gimmick surrounding the belief by the ancient Mayan people of Mexico that the world would end on December 21 last year.“Perhaps you thought the world was going to end and you’d get away with it,” remarked Judge Paul Kelly at today’s hearing.The court heard that gardai arrived at The Pulse at 3am on December 22 and found Clarke in an altercation with bouncers.They warned Clarke to leave the area but he then became aggressive.“It took six gardai to restrain him and to put him into a Garda vehicle,” said the prosecuting inspector.Defence solicitor Kieran Dillon said Clarke’s behaviour was completely out of character.He said his client worked for a community group in Castlefin and was dedicated to making his community better.“The circumstances, my client instructs me, were rather different. Mr Clarke’s brother had been ejected from the nightclub concerned in what they would say was a case of mistaken identity,” said Mr Dillon.“Mr Clarke then saw one of the security staff punch his brother and he stepped in to intervene. It was at that moment that gardai arrived,” said the solicitor.Judge Paul Kelly said: “Mr Clarke completely over-reacted. It took six gardai to restrain and gardai in this town have better things to be getting on with.“Perhaps you believed the world was going to end you’d thought he’d get away with it!”Judge Kelly said he wanted to adjourn the case for two weeks to consider his sentence.He asked Mr Dillon to speak with the Castlefin Tidy Towns committee to see if they would facilitate Clarke in doing extra hours for no pay.COMMUNITY WORKER FOUGHT SIX GARDAI AT ‘END OF THE WORLD PARTY’ was last modified: January 17th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:COMMUNITY WORKER FOUGHT SIX GARDAI AT ‘END OF THE WORLD PARTY’

Norwich’s new manager Chris Hughton remained defiant after his side’s 5-0 defeat at Fulham.Hughton, who took over at Carrow Road this summer, admitted the thrashing at Craven Cottage was “awful and tough to watch”.“We know we’re going to have defeats,” Hughton added. “It won’t be our last, and it wont be our last by a few goals.“The most important thing is the reaction from the players. They will want to react. They’ll be hurting because they’re all good characters.“It was an awful day because it’s the opening day and you want to get off to a good start. But we didn’t defend well and I thought four of the five goals were avoidable.“The defeat hasn’t changed my idea about the squad and what I want to achieve. We are making enquiries [about new players] and working hard but there is nothing new on that.”See also:Two for Petric in Fulham rompFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

It’s quite nice. The newest addition to the project is unusually low-tech; it’s artist renditions of the top 50 musical artists of the year.Last year’s Zeitgeist combined different technology to present the top albums and is still available as a list.

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Tuesday said he would take up with Prime Minister Narendra Modi the issue of persuading Pakistan to grant Indian devotees open access to more historic gurdwaras across the border.Expressing his gratitude to Mr. Modi and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for helping realise the Sikh community’s dream of visiting the Kartarpur Gurdwara, Capt. Amarinder hoped this would be followed by more such gurdwaras in Pakistan, such as Panja Sahib and Nankana Sahib, being opened to Indian devotees.He said he would personally take up the matter with Mr. Modi and urge him to raise the issue with Mr. Khan.Capt. Amarinder acknowledged the support given by the Union government in making the historic celebrations a success and expressed happiness at the participation of people from different political parties, as a tribute to the first Sikh guru.President present President Ram Nath Kovind, who attended the celebrations, said Guru Nanak Dev tried to free people from caste and creed and ritualism by teaching them lessons of equality, brotherhood, kindness and morality. “True followers of Guru Nanak Dev Ji work for the welfare of all, live in harmony and do their job with diligence and honesty,” he said. Mr. Kovind paid obeisance at Gurdwara Ber Sahib and then went to the stage set up by the Punjab government for the celebrations. Later, he went to the other stage (pandal) set up by the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee.Two stagesHowever, the setting up of separate stages for the celebrations didn’t go down well with the pilgrims, many of whom felt that the Guru’s message of ‘oneness’ was unheeded by political parties.Forty-five-year old Baljinder Singh from Patiala, who had come to the holy town for the first time, said that he was peeved at the two stages. “They [SGPC and the State government] should have joined hands and set up only one stage. Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s idea and message of ‘oneness’ has been disregarded by them,” he said.“I’ll pay obeisance at the gurdwara and return. I’ll not go any of these stages,” he added.A group of youngsters from Jalalabad in Fazilka expressed similar sentiments. “How will they [political parties] preach the message of the Guru, when they seem to be involved in their advertising through there stages and events?” said 32-year-old Daljeet Singh.Seventy-five-year-old Darshan Singh from Amritsar said: “Such division is not good for humanity. The message of unification and integration should have been sent, instead an opposite message has been conveyed.”Guru Nanak Dev had spent 14 years of his early life in Sultanpur Lodhi.
Lionel Messi scored one penalty and missed another as Barcelona beat Real Valladolid 1-0 on Saturday to open up a seven-point lead at the top of La Liga.The Catalans played far below their vibrant best but were not troubled by the visitors at the Nou Camp as they ended a run of three consecutive draws in all competitions.Ousmane Dembele was handed his first start after injury, and loan signing Kevin-Prince Boateng featured for only the second time since joining in January as coach Ernesto Valverde started with Luis Suarez on the bench ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash at Olympique Lyonnais.Barcelona struggled to create chances against a tight Valladolid defence, only breaking the deadlock when Messi converted a penalty won by Gerard Pique just before half-time for his 22nd league goal of the season.Messi almost scored his second early in the second half but former Barcelona goalkeeper Jordi Masip pulled off a breathtaking stop to deny La Liga’s top scorer from close range.The Argentine had another chance from the penalty spot in the final stages after substitute Philippe Coutinho was fouled but Masip made another impressive save to deny him.”We didn’t move the ball as quickly as we needed to,” said Valverde. “We lacked fluidity in the first half, we had it in the second. We were more ourselves.”We had six chances but we know that everything is looked at through the result.”At times it seemed like Barcelona’s minds were already drifting towards the return of the Champions League, with only Pique performing particularly well on his 300th La Liga appearance for the club.advertisementThe defender’s charge upfield led to Barcelona’s penalty in the first half and another similar drive forward got fans out of their seats after the break.”We weren’t the Barca we wanted to be today,” said Pique.”For Tuesday we have to be better or it will go badly for us. If we don’t move the ball quickly, dominate possession and create chances we become a weaker team.”Messi, who has been suffering some discomfort in his thigh, looked fitter than he did last weekend when Barca drew 0-0 with Athletic Bilbao yet he gave the ball away on numerous occasions.Valladolid, however, have the least potent attack in La Liga, having scored just 19 goals all season and rarely troubled Barca keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.Only Masip prevented Messi from adding to his tally and the goalkeeper completed an impressive homecoming display with a fine save from substitute Suarez at the end.Also Watch:
